hackerWe have recently been intrigued by the ability of others to hack into your car, truck or SUV.  Today, on behalf of your Canada GMC Truck Dealership in Thunder Bay, we are looking a little deeper into this subject.  There is a SyScan that takes place once a year in Singapore and during these discussions, some very interesting points were made. The SyScan talk “goes into detail on how to get into car hacking even without a car,” Miller says. “If we have enough smart people looking at it, we can find problems and have discussions” about how to improve automotive computer security.  This is the point, according to our research on behalf of your Thunder Bay Truck Dealership in ON, of the Singapore SyScan talk.

Miller and Valasek are at the center of this entire subject and are working to find security flaws.  These flaws in new and used car and other vehicles, such as your GMC Trucks in Thunder Bay will hopefully be addressed in the next design, though the process can take years by the time the issues are identified, confirmed and adjusted for, it is better than ignoring the issues altogether.

This time consumption described above, however, would make the immediate threats a real concern if not handled other ways such as the following, found in our research on behalf of your GMC Truck Dealer in Canada, “For the near term, the researchers have created a prototype plug-in automotive firewall to identify and stop potentially malicious network traffic entering and traveling between a car’s computers. The firewall connects to a car via its on-board diagnostic system (OBD–II) port, but Miller says the device could potentially be wired into the car elsewhere or built directly into an ECU.”
